Abstract
The paper presents the main aspects and implementation of an online multiple choice examination system with general chemistry issues for student evaluation. The testing system was used to generate items for a multiple-choice examination for first year undergraduate students in Material Engineering and Environmental Engineering from Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania, which all attend the same General Chemistry course.

    • "An auto-calibrated online system for students evaluation was previously designed (Jäntschi and Bolboacă, 2006) as alternative to a classical multiple choice examination system (Naşcu and Jäntschi, 2004). The system were implemented for a series of disciplines (Bolboacă and Jäntschi, 2007; Jäntschi and others, 2007). "
    [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Number of correct answers and time spent by the students enrolled at Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering from Technical University of Cluj-Napoca and attending at Materials Chemistry discipline answering to a multiple choice multiple answer online evaluation system were analyzed. The analysis shown that the evaluation characteristics it follow a lifetime distribution.

    • "At higher education level, computers are used also as instruments in the students' knowledge assessment, being found as common type of evaluation in sciences and applied sciences domains: computer science [12], engineering [13], medicine [14], health sciences [15], pharmaceuticals [16], etc. According with the necessity of development of an objective system for students' knowledge evaluation at university level, starting with experiences obtained by creation of the multiple choice examination system for general chemistry [17,18], an auto-calibrated online system was developed [19] and assessed [20]. The materials chemistry knowledge assessment of the undergraduate first year students' was study by the used of the auto-calibrated online system and the obtained results are presented. "
    [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Development of communication and information technology has an important impact on teaching, learning and knowledge assessment. According with national trends in objective evaluation of undergraduate students' knowledge, starting with experiences obtained by creation of the multiple choices examination system for general chemistry, an auto-calibrated online evaluation system was developed. The aim of the research was to assess the first year undergraduate students' knowledge on materials chemistry topic at the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering, the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania by the use of the developed auto-calibrated online evaluation system. The testing and evaluation methodologies are presented. The students' performances in terms of individual testing points and the average time needed to give a correct answer were collected and analyzed. The proposed auto-calibrated online evaluation system proved to offer a stable and valid evaluation environment of undergraduate students' knowledge assessment on materials chemistry topic.

    • "Some differences were observed on tests which include extensive reading passages, when the students proved to obtained lower performance on computerbased tests comparing with on paper tests [17, 18]. Starting from the experiences obtained by creation of the multiple-choice examination system for general chemistry topic [19, 20], the present paper concerned with issues involved in creation of an auto-calibrated online system, computer-system designs, database and program implementation, and system evaluation. "
    [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: An auto-calibrated online evaluation system for student knowledge assessment was developed and has been implemented at the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering, the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca. The system is available for students’ end-of-course evaluation on physical chemistry, microbiology and toxicology, and materials chemistry topics and it can be used at the test center. The auto-calibrated online evaluation methodology, databases and program implementation, computer-system design and evaluation are reported.
